the oh obama foreign policy is going to be in the years to come. they're concerned that the obama administration is going to start to take a more stringent line with israel, and frankly to israel's benefit in my estimation. so i think this is as much about precluding where they see the obama administration going as it is about this nomination. >> john: and that he wants to change the pentagon on an constitutional level. joe, your thoughts? >> well, my thoughts, yes that's exactly right. he's going to change the pentagon as an institution because as a former senator he knows the ins and outs of how the budget process works knows how to get the numbers down. he and obama are kindred spirits. and they both kind of have the same world-view. they both are willing to be contrary to their own party loyalties. they're both willing to do the tough decisions to make decisions that won't necessarily be popular with their own people and get it done for the good of the country. so i think hagel brings credibility to that position, not only as somebody who has been a long-time public servant bu

. president obama announced on mayday, on may 1st a couple of years ago that osama bin laden had been killed. the president said he had approved a covert mission inside pakistan that resulted in the death of the founder and later of al qaeda, the group that attacked us on september 11th, 2001, which led congress to pass the authorization for use of military force, which has justified the 12 years of war that have followed ever since. so the announcement that bin laden was dead on may 21st -- excuse me, on may 1st, 2010, may 1st, 2010. two days later, two days later on may 3rd, 2010, two days after that announcement, retired senator chuck hagel gave an interview to his hometown paper in lincoln, nebraska "the journal star." he told the paper it should reassure america and the world that america is still a leader, and we can and will get the job done. he said, quote, that is very important for the world to realize. more the point, though, chuck hagel then said, "well, now that we've killed osama bin laden, let's leave afghanistan." he said that the pursuit of bin laden and al qaeda was, quote,
, last year, the convention at which president obama officially accepted the nomination of his party for a second term, the guy who stole the show kind of, the guy who had the audience in rapt attention for the better part of an hour was, yes, barack obama, well received speech, yes. but the other than that guy, the guy who did that who wasn't barack obama was bill clinton. >> people ask me all the time how we got four surplus budgets in a row. what new ideas did we bring to washington? i always give a one-word answer. arithmetic. [ applause ] >> arithmetic. we simply cannot afford to give the reins of government to someone who will double down on trickle-down. >> bill clinton gave a stem winder of a speech at that convention. he spoke for 48 long detailed minutes. he made a stronger case for president obama's reelection than he had ever made before. and in that process, he achieved the unlikely feat of winning over even a number of his long-time political adversaries. after that very well received speech, republicans came out to proclaim their previously secret inner bill clinton lo

's investment capability and whether people should invest here will downgrade like we saw last year. so, i don't understand why president obama, if he knows what you just said and what i know that the republicans are never going to go for another tax increase. why bother? i will tell you why. >> in my view it comes down to this. the republicans are worried about the cost of these entitlement programs which are the big drivers of our deficits and debt president obama would like to finance the cost of those programs, that is those are diametrically opposed positions and one that each side holds dearly in latest roundth president got as you pointed out some from new tax revenue. that's pretty much in people's minds. part of that revenue is coming from the fact that the payroll tax holiday going on and everybody saw in their paychecks, particularly at the beginning of the year that's gone. >> they are seeing tax increase, doesn't matter whether it's payroll tax or income tax the check is lighter. they know that so you have these tax cuts tax increases which were supposedly be on the rich hitting v

favorably about president obama. he had a honeymoon for his first four years and you would hope, and i -- there's something in me that tells me that they will get tougher with president obama and here is a perfect chance, as you've outlined it, stuart. you know, you have -- here they're doing things that i think many people who voted for president obama didn't expect him to do. they weren't expecting another huge tax increase. i thought-- i think many of them thought that just raising the income tax rates on the wealthy would be enough and here they're talking about a trillion more and no spending problem? >> fred, i just can't believe that the media will continue to beat up on the republicans when clearly there is no intention of cutting spending or just how we'we are saying getting spending under control and continuing to raise taxes on a small group of people. and it's just not true if you raise taxes on the rich you can pay for all the goodies that we're spending money on. i'm convinced that it's something, maybe i'm naive. i'm convinced at some point pretty soon some in the establ

.4 to fannie mae. there's a report published monday that says the obama administration spent nearly $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year, more than the spending on all the other major federal law enforcement agencies combined. that is 15 times greater than immigration spending in 1986. the nonpart son migration policy institute says immigration has become the government's highest law enforcement priority. among those likely to be unhappy with this report, critics who say the administration has been soft on immigration violators. >>> president obama meets with his defense secretary today but it's not his new choice for that job, former nebraska senator chuck hagel that has republicans reeling. nbc's tracie potts is live in washington this morning with more on how his pentagon and cia nominations could prompt the next big fight on capitol hill. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, everyone. we're already seeing democrats and republicans here with concerns about hagel. john brennan, protests by aclu and others on that nomination. protests outside the white house questioning
secretary in president obama's first year, and he plans to pin this, who is the publisher? i don't know he will not have a problem getting a publisher. if it's written well and goes after people, he's the type of guy that will, and i will buy this book. what are others doing? bill daly, former chief of staff, jack lew took his place, and bill told people on wall street he wants to run for governor, seriously considering it. why is it important to say it to wall street executives? raising money from them, senior people on wall street, talking about that. interesting story. we'll see if he does it. here's the real interesting thing. ben bernanke likely to step down; right? he wanted one more year, finish the term, who is going to replace him? well, there's two names. at least the white house leaked two names at the top of the list, the short list. one is a guy named ferguson, roger ferguson, tia, you know, a former fed governor, and corporate america for a long time, a ceo, and the other guy is the guy you always hear, but i think it's serious this time, larry summers. lori: really? >> how i

in their position. >>> and speaking of government spending, a report published monday says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year, more than on all the other federal law enforcement agencies combined and 15 times greater than immigration spending in 1986. the nonpartisan research group the migration policy institute says immigration has become the government's highest law enforcement priority. among those likely to be unhappy with that report, critics who say the administration has been soft on immigration violators. >>> after weeks of recovery from a concussion that led to a blood clot in her head, secretary of state hillary clinton was back in action monday as clinton presided over a state department meeting, her staff welcomed her back with a gag gift, a football helmet with the state department seal on it. she also got a football jersey with the number 112, the record setting number of countries secretary of state clinton visited while in office. >>> in colorado, a week long preliminary hearing is underway for james holmes, the lone gunman charged with k
administration and then under the first year of the obama adminiration. and each time the senate killed it. >> yeah. but the key thing there is that each time both the clinton administration and the obama administration tried to do this it was essentially a top-down, inside the beltway strategy. we are going after and trying to cajole and convince and persuade the members of the senate and the house to pass this legislation without first engaging the broad public and building a citizens movement, a issue public as i talked about before that was actually demanding change. because in the end politicians care about their job. and if they don't feel like there's a political price to pay for opposing action on climate change or alternatively a political opportunity to be had by being a leader on this issue, it's very easy for them to say, "you know what? i've got a lot of other things here on my plate to deal with. i've got lots of lobbyists coming into my office as well as people back home saying, 'do this, that, do this.' and it's not climate change." so until they feel that they have to act
'd have to say this is a confident president obama right now. just consider the selections of chuck hagel, john kerry, even though it's not susan rice, but also john brennan compared to four years ago. jim jones did not work out. there was secretary gates at defense that was brought over from the bush administration before him. and so i think in many ways this sort of demonstrates that the president feels he'll put his imprint on foreign policy going forward from him. hillary clinton a choice that some may have viewed as a concession of secretary of state and worked out well for both sides. >> david, you know, chuck hagel has gotten some opposition from the left and the right. do you expect in a second term now elected and safe obama might get some more opposition from the left, from democrats? i'm thinking maybe on drones or extra judicial killing or some of the things that maybe some liberals had been quieter on waiting for obama to get re-elected? >> i think that's definitely a big issue. you know, looking at the picks that the president announced yesterday for national security team,
to innovate is exhausting in government. let me tell you. in spite of that, i am ready for several more years of innovation. i hope you are. i hope california is. [laughter] [applause] >> for this next question, let's pretend that president obama is sitting in this chair. but pretend this is a private room -- let's pretend this is a private room. we need everyone out there to be quiet. if you were here along with the president, what are the two things you would tell him you need to make your state more competitive or all states more competitive? >> i think and i am an unabashed supporter of the president. i do not think all his policies are perfect but he has done a remarkable job of coming into an almost impossible situation in dealing with it as best you can. i can -- would look at the programs that have already embarked on the investment of making sure the government supports research at the deepest trouble and is providing not just grants but tax credits. the focus on making sure that we're building a culture of innovation. colorado is the last three years when there were no jobs anywhere
-dollar coin as a solution to the country's next fiscal crisis. >> we should have known a coin was obama's solution to everything. it was right there in his slogan "change." captioning funded by cbs >>> welcome to "cbs this morning." there is at least one more issue for congress to fight about in the new year president obama announced yesterday he is nominating former republican senator chuck hagel to lead the defense department. >> at the cia the president wants his chief counterterrorism adviser john brennan to be in charge. both must be confirmed by the senate where the former senator faces intense criticism. bill plante is at the white house. good morning. >> reporter: good morning and good morning in the west. the president praised hagel as a vietnam vet who bears the scars of his war wounds the first enlisted soldier to head the department of defense, it was a clear effort to convince skeptical republicans and democrats in the senate that hagel is the right man for the job. >> he understands that sending young americans to fight and bleed in the dirt and mud
on this at the top, david-- obama doctrine that might come out of this next four years? >> well, if the doctrine in the first four years, charlie, was that the united states will act unilaterally when its direct interests are affected-- think of the bin laden raid-- but that it will only act in concert with others when its interests are far more general-- think of the libya invasion where the president insisted that nato and the arab league take the lead, or think about syria where everyone has been pretty well paralyzed for the past year and a half nearly two years now-- then the president has insisted that the u.s. will not act as the policemen of the world. and when i suggested that that light footprint strategy and that doctrine are beginning to run to their limits what i meant was that there are places around the world where people with politics and economics. after several rounds of negotiations, congress averted the fiscal cliff by passing a last-minute deal on january 1. the compromise allowed tax rates to rise only on affluent americans while temporarily suspending across-the-board spen
about john mccain ten years ago when he was running against george bush. chuck hagel has some of the problems that he does. keep in mind, he is as -- we said in intro, he is obama's choice, and, of course, republicans are going to object to him. there's a certain amount of partisan ranker. >> that's a problem, right? once it's completely obvious that they would try to block him because he is obama's choice, but this is not sfw that is traditionally done. we have a statistic somewhere here. do you know how many cabinet nominees have been rejected since 1789? 2%. >> wow. >> the understanding is when a president wants someone to be in his cabinet, you let the president have that person in his cabinet, but michael eric dyson, are we witnessing the dawn of a new era where everything the man wants to do is -- >> i teach hagel, marx, and freud, they're just great people. the reality is that chuck hagel is an independent-minded person. the republicans want your cake and eat it too. you want somebody who is independent and saying, look, i disagree. gently but forcefully. here's a man w
lugar who's not returning to the senate this year. hi essential argument has been that you need to engage and not to sanction. he sounded a lot like president obama sounded in the 2008 campaign. but the obama position has evolved considerably. and today unilateral sanctions-- as you and i have discussed on this show many times before-- are the key element apart from covert action to putting pressure on the iranians to come to the bargaining table. and it hasn't worked yet in any serious way. i think as somebody at the white house said to me the other day "you're going to see chuck hagel embrace the president's policy pretty wholeheartedly when the confirmation hearings happen." but he is clearly a skeptic and he's also been a skeptic about the utility of military action-- as is the president. the problem is that many believe that you need to be able to convince the iranians that this president is willing to take military action if negotiations fail. it's not clear that as secretary of defense mr. hagel will be able to do that convincingly. >> rose: why can't the president do tha
year or 10 years. she needs help now. i voted for obama. it allowed her to maintain her support she would have lost under romney. i main objective right now is that we spent all this time, we are great people, we are talking to ourselves. we are not the ones we need to talk to. we need to talk to the almost half of america who voted against their own best interest repeatedly. i was down in immokalee to talk to people to understand what was going on and talk to people who are republicans, who view the world differently, and to get them to look at their own best interests. and ask the question, what do they want their own world to be? my question is, how do we get to those people? >> i tend to think, as i said, there is a layer of low hanging fruit that is extremely appealing to people across all constituencies and across all parties. it sounded to me like you were saying how can people on the left reach out to people on the upper right. i just think we need to reach out to both sides and appealed to people on the very rational, reasonable set of points. and to show the series of fina
